GAME STORY: Laughlin, Clyde stop Anson 5-1

CLYDE — With Clyde’s Payton Laughlin on the hill, the Anson Tigers knew coming into Tuesday’s District 5-3A road game that they would have to take advantage of what few opportunities that came their way. 

Unfortunately for AHS, Laughlin was able to close the door nearly every time it opened, stranding four Tigers in scoring position in a 5-1 Clyde win. 

Tossing a three-hitter with 12 strikeouts, Laughlin (6-1) overcame three errors behind him and three of his own walks to earn the win with his seventh complete game of the year. His ERA dropped to 1.12 in the process.

But while fifth-year coach Chris Hagler acknowledges that development is the most intriguing storyline surrounding his program this season, he doesn’t seem too concerned by it.

Coming out of a district that featured Stamford, Hawley and Post, the Tigers won’t see a level of play significantly better than they’re used to, Hagler said. And he believes Anson, which won 10 games in 2012, 2013 and 2016 will have as much control over its playoff fate as it ever has.

Anson Tigers expect to compete despite challenges

The Anson football team is coming off a tough 5-6 season, was moved from Class 2A Division I to Class 3A Division II at realignment and returns fewer lettermen than all but one of its seven district mates. But if fifth-year Tigers coach Chris Hagler is more nervous than normal heading into the upcoming season, he’s hiding it well.

With six offensive and five defensive starters back among its 10 returning lettermen, Anson has a solid nucleus to build around. And Hagler expects the young guys joining the mix to make whatever adjustments are necessary to become contributors themselves.
